Good show get over it.
There are many bad shows in 95 and this isn’t one of them. Skip the Phil song and you’ve got a very nice first set. The Playing isn’t great because they flub it, but they actually complete it, for the last time. They also play GDTRFB and Throwing Stones > NFA for the very last time, so please don’t knock this show.

Awesome show but bittersweet
Yes, it sucked that the house lights were on, the first time EVER. Yes, it sucked that there were cops and sharpshooters in the rafters but all that was for the safety of THE DEAD. Because of the riots at Deer Creek days before, the crew got a rare day off-nicest guys ever!! Gave my roomie and I tickets, i miriacled the most beautiful girl in the parking lot and had some of the best shows ever sitting on the stacks behind Vince. Those and the following Soldier Field shows were amazing and the last, lest some forget. We should all be grateful to have those final memories

Tired and sloppy
The band sounds very tired and Jerry just isn't there. The Playing In The Band is atrocious. I've never heard worse and it just makes me sad.

House lights on after Death Threat
I grew to like Corrina. Only GDTRFB in 95. I like song selection of Same Thing, Iko, Playin, Crazy Fingers but the actually playing is sub-par. I had a good time at the show, but will rarely listen to this disc.

yes there is hiss.
yes they are tired.
anyways, i love 90's dead. always will. :)
this is a good show. The remastered show should be uploaded soon. enjoy!
Well, let's see, between the tools that trampled the fence at Deer Creek (as well as the death threats on garcia), and the torrential rain that eventually took some heads out at a campground at these shows, the end was nearing. They sound tired this night, and not just Jerry, the whole clan, IMHO. I just can't muster any reason to give this more than a 2 star rating. Sounds spent.

The first set is energetic and played well. Second set is interesting with a complete Playin>jam>playin reprise together. Crazy Fingers falls apart a bit but the show gathers itself for a good post space performance including excellent Throwing Stones and a full throttle Not Fade jam. Sound has some residual hiss between songs but the tone and clarity are still good.

I second the last review. This show is pretty nice. It's probably the nicest show of the last two weeks of shows.

Very nice 95 show.
The other people that reviewed this show are just wrong. One person said " complete and total slophouse performance, and a relatively unflattering recording to boot... ", and another review stated "Feel Like A Stranger is particularly hard to listen to, as is most of the first set with Jerry playing sporadically and producing a multitude of bad notes". I just totally disagree. The opening stranger is amazing. The peggy-o is very mellow and jerry plays smooth. The el paso is very nice as well. I always enjoy a crazy drums>space and this one does not dissapoint. Ending the show with a nice mellow black muddy river, always one of my favorites. It was like jerry new what was coming, but it is a nice show and I hope you will download it.

unfortunately, there are no highlights, although the post-Space stuff is okay....
I'd love to give this show 1.5 or 2 stars, but...I...just...can't.
The rest of the band is playing well, but Garcia is not playing great at all. Feel Like A Stranger is particularly hard to listen to, as is most of the first set with Jerry playing sporadically and producing a multitude of bad notes. Alas, not much changes for Set 2, with Weir and Lesh doing most of the work. However, after a very uninsperational, drawn out Space, Jerry seems to find some energy, and the band glide through a very nice GDTRFB>Throwing Stones>Not Fade Away with minimal hick-ups. Black Muddy River though is not so hot, with Jerry flubbing the lyrics, and the band trying to keep up as he jumps a whole bar after his solo. Sound wise, you can really hear the Cassette generation, as there is a fair amount of hiss. The encore is also patched from an audience source.
